|Garnet is most commonly found as a deep blood-red stone but can appear in many other varieties. Its name comes from the latin word “granatum” which translates to pomegranate, referencing its similarity to the seeds of a pomegranate fruit. It is found worldwide but its common pomegranate formation is primarily found in Sri Lanka, Afghanistan, Brazil, Austria, and India.
Garnet has been used in many civilizations throughout history. It was a very commonly used stone long ago as people were more closely connected with the Earth and life required more physical work. It generally gave the ancient people the necessary energy to carry out their daily tasks and possibly helped them manifest many of the great structures and tools we still hear about today. It was very popular in Ancient Czechoslovakia during the Bronze Age, Egypt over 5,000 years ago, Sumeria around 2100 B.C., and Sweden around 1000-200 B.C.. Garnet was also considered a sacred stone by the Native American, South American, African, Mayan, and Aztec tribes. It was one of the sacred stones in the high priest’s breastplate and it is said that the only light on Noah’s ark was provided by a giant Garnet. During the Middle Ages, lions were carved on Garnets and carried to protect one’s health, especially when traveling.
By arousing the chi, or life force, within the physical body, garnet encourages you to go out and smell roses.

Garnets are very grounding stones that have incredible manifestation abilities. They are of great assistance in bringing creative thoughts into the physical world. Each type of Garnet is geared towards different kinds of manifestation, but all are able to ground one’s desires and goals into the physical realm. Garnet’s vibrations boost one’s physical endurance and life force, increasing blood flow and linking one strongly with their body.
The dense energies of Garnet not only ground one so that they may fully experience physical life, but also provide a powerful shield that can keep negative energies from attaching to them. Garnet is also able to extract negative energies and transmute them into a state that benefits the one using it. This makes it an excellent tool for healing work and mediation as its vibrations connect directly to one’s highest physical good.
